1 O Herre Krist, gak ikke bort,
Bliv hos os nu, det kvælder fort!
Kom ind og mig den Glæde gjør,
Træd indenfor mit Huses Dør!

2 Lad dig nu bede, det er sent!
Du ser, det hjertelig er ment,
Og veed, du fremfor alle mest
Er mig saa hjertenskjær en Gjest.

3 Du veed, hvor det med mig er fat,
Det stunder til dein forte Nat,
Saa maa ei du, som Lyset er,
Forlade mig i Mørket her.

4 Lys op, at jeg kan finde frem
Til Herberg mit og Himmel-Hjem,
At Syndemørkets Nat og Nid
Mig ei forvilder hid og did!

5 Særdeles i min sidste Nød
Hjælp du mig til en salig Død!
O Herre, bliv, jeg slipper dig
Ei, før du faar velsignet mig!

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact.
